Mehtiana: Harwinder Singh Bhungarni: The lifting process at grain market Dihana is at halt and thus the farmers and brokers are facing problems. The farmers and brokers have made an appeal to the Punjab Government to lift the wheat from the grain markets in order to solve their problems.
It is noteworthy here that the brokers do not purchase wheat from the farmers till the Government agencies lift the wheat from the brokers. Wheat kept in the grain market is the responsibility of the brokers and thus, the rain and other damage to the wheat can cause them huge losses.
So, the brokers and farmers have made an appeal to the Punjab Government to lift the wheat through the government agencies.
Inspector of Food & Supplies department, Tarlochan Singh said that the lifting will be done soon. He said that they have been committed to provide friendly environment in the grain markets.
